Kenyan firms will participate in the upcoming second China International Import Expo (CIIE) in Shanghai to exhibit their products in a push to grow trade with China.
Kenyan business leaders are optimistic that the 2nd CIIE will further expose the east African nation's products to the Chinese market. These include tea, coffee, flowers, herbs and avocados, which are the country's top foreign exchange-earners.
George Kiondo, the acting chief executive officer of Kenya National Chamber of Commerce and Industry (KNCCI), a trade lobby group, said the expo comes as China and Kenya move to strengthen bilateral ties and trade.
"The exhibition is very important to our members and Kenya in general as it helps expose us to opportunities in China," Kiondo told Xinhua in a recent interview.
